Infant Car Seats
Expecting? Congrats! One of the first things you’ll need is a car seat, and an infant-specific car seat is designed for newborns to small babies up to about a year old. These small, portable seats are rear-facing only and many can be clicked into a stroller with adapters or travel system for use outside the car. While many infants outgrow them by their first birthday, they can be an affordable option for new parents.
Convertible Car Seats
If all-in-one sounds good to you, a convertible car seat that grows with your child is a great option. These car seats can be used from birth through toddler years, and sometimes even older if they convert to a booster. They convert from rear-facing to forward-facing with full adjustability to keep your child comfortable in the backseat. A birth-to-booster seat can be your child’s car seat for the first 10 or so years of their life (depending on the make and model), and convertible car seats allow babies and toddlers to stay rear-facing longer. Wondering how this all works? Connect with a Curated Expert who can help show you the ropes!
Is your kid quickly outgrowing their forward-facing car seat? Maybe you’re looking for something that’s easy to swap in and out of carpool rides? A booster seat is generally a safe car seat for children ages four to twelve (depending on a child’s size) and uses the vehicle’s seat belt, rather than a five-point harness, to secure them across their lap and chest. The booster effectively boosts them up to the seat belt’s intended height so that it works properly.
Kids love boosters and their big-kid feel, but backless boosters don’t offer side support—which makes it harder for them to fall asleep in the car since their head isn’t supported. High-back boosters are ideal for vehicles that don’t have headrests or high seat backs. Boosters are typically more affordable, lightweight, and portable, especially the backless options. If you’re in the market for a booster seat or considering a car seat that will work with your child from birth to booster, reach out to a Curated Expert!
Car Seat Accessories
Kids are needy! That’s a fact. When you’re driving, they tend to be needier, which is why having a host of accessories for the back seat will help you when you’re on the road. Whether you need a sun shade, backseat organizer, seat protector, or adapters for clicking your car seat into a stroller, we have a wide variety of necessities to make for smoother travel.
